    CAN YOU HEAR US? Chasing The Sun

    CAN YOU HEAR US? –Chasing The Sun

    Can You Hear Us?

    Come together one and all
    Stand together, stand tall
    Try to find the strength that lies
    Deep within your heart
    There will be an answer rising from the dark
    Take your chances, take them all
    The battle can be won but a few must fall
    Separate the truth from all
    The lies that have been thrown
    Show the world your face
    You are not alone
    Cos’ i wanna know
    Will you listen to us now? Can you hear us?
    Can you hear us shout?
    I wanna know
    That you really understand
    That you’ve truly got it figured out
    Yes i wanna know
    Will you listen to us now?
    Find your voice and shout it out
    A little louder, no doubt
    Make them listen, make them know
    Plant the seed, let it grow

    Speak your mind, play the game
    Save the future, spark the flame
    Take the jump, bridge the gap
    No regrets, no looking back

    WE CAN RUN –Chasing The Sun

    We Can Run

    Yes i know where we’re going
    And i know where we’ve been
    There are so many things we’re not knowing
    Let’s discover while we can
    We’ve been a little trapped like a root in the ground
    A little bit lost on the road
    Now we have found that we’re out of the rut
    Let’s do this while we can
    Cos we can run, fast, climb a little higher
    We can soar to the top, they’ll never get us down
    We can run, free, set the world on fire
    Lets do this while we can
    We’ve come a long way since we’ve been on our own
    Further than we thought that we could
    Proved to the world that we’ve got what it takes
    I guess you knew we would
    Getting better every day
    Crashing all the borders on our way
    And when we cross the line we’ll know we never let our world decay
    And we can say....
    We’re gonna run, fast, climb a little higher.......

    YOU DON'T KNOW –Chasing The Sun

    You Don’t Know

    The time has come they said
    Make your bed they said
    Its your time to lie in it
    Are you alive or are you dead?
    Do you lead or are you lead?
    Who puts the thoughts inside your head?
    Cos you’re not a robot
    You have a heart
    And i said yes, no, you don’t know
    Trying to make your mind up
    Which way are you gonna go?
    Yes, no, you don’t know
    Sitting on the fence and waiting
    Endless days of contemplating
    Look inside the eye
    Of your mind to find
    That you know your own way
    No matter what they say
    Are you the needle or the thread?
    Are you green or are you red?
    You’re not a robot
    You have a heart
    Round and round and round we go
    The question stays the same
    At least you have a choice
    At least you’re in the game
    Round and round and round we go
    Miss another calling
    You don’t know what you had until it fades away

    BLOWN AWAY –Chasing The Sun

    Blown Away

    I never truly realised
    The wonder of this place
    My love was reignited
    What a beautiful light
    What a lovely pace
    The blackened yellow sandstone
    Like the lines on an ancient face
    Each one tells a story
    They all add to the soul of this place
    Blown away...
    Oh yes i’m blown away
    Blown away....
    Oh yes i’m blown away
    Your brazen front belies
    Your knowing wrong from right
    Those who know you well
    Know that your bark’s worse than your bite
    This place became my home
    This city full of life
    Rough around the edges
    Carved with a pocket knife

    YOU WERE MY FRIEND –Chasing The Sun

    You Were My Friend

    You were my friend
    But now you are gone
    Your laughter lives on
    In our hearts
    And this is your song
    Cos you were my friend
    But now you are gone
    I hope you find peace
    A place to live on
    We were the ones
    Who’d laugh until we cried
    I’ll never forget you my friend
    You’re remembered with pride
    The times that we had
    Seem so long ago
    But some of the best
    That we’ve known
    And we miss you so

    HERE I AM –Chasing The Sun

    Here I Am

    Here we go again
    I’ll try to stop you going under
    without stepping on your toes
    stealing all your thunder
    I give you all my time
    I give you all my patience
    finding the escape
    from a tricky situation

    It takes a lot of strength
    to keep your head above the water
    and I’m doing all I can
    to stop the rain from coming down
    I’ll try to save the day
    from tumbling to disaster
    if you’re running out of time
    I’ll run a little faster

    Here I am, to the rescue
    I’ve come to get you
    Here I am
    Yeah…….to the rescue
    I’ve come to get you
    Here I am

    Have a little faith
    I know what I’m doing
    have a little trust
    in what I have to say

    BY YOUR SIDE –Chasing The Sun

    By Your Side

    I know you want somewhere to run to
    I know you want somewhere to hide
    You’re just looking for some comfort
    Someone to stand by your side
    And i won’t blame you for your actions
    I’m not here to criticize
    I want to be the one who helps you
    The one in whom you can confide
    You don’t let it show
    But i can still see
    You try to let go but you’re needing me
    I don’t understand
    Sometimes how you feel
    Show me the door
    Give me the key
    You don’t need to keep pretending
    You don’t need to try to hide
    I’ll lead the way if you just let me
    I’ll be the one right by your side

    WALK WITH ME –Chasing The Sun

    Walk With Me

    Walk with me i’ll share the strain
    Walk with me, feel no shame
    Together we can make a change
    You should be proud of what you became
    Walk with me and have no doubt
    Here’s what i am talking about
    Life woul d be a duller game
    If each one of us were all the same
    Walk with me and show no hate
    Bite your tongue don’t take the bait
    Make the world a better place
    It never is too little or too late
    Let it be known
    That your true colours should be shown
    Each to their own
    We’re not carved from the same stone
